Riassunto: ?While Catherine Cox and I were writing Apollo, Jerry Bostick was one of a handful of people who became our go-to sources-the men who made the Apollo days come alive again. What great news that Jerry is now telling his story in all the detail that it deserves. It will be an indispensable source for future generations who want to understand that historic era.? Charles Murray, co-author, Apollo When author Jerry Bostick was eight years old, his family had indoor plumbing installed in their home. He thought they were living in the lap of luxury. In The Kid from Golden, Bostick shares his life story beginning with his birth in June of 1939 in that house in Golden, Mississippi. This memoir narrates a chronological rendering of Bostick's family and memories and tells about his many accomplishments. The Kid from Golden discusses his early years growing up in rural Mississippi; to serving as a page in the Us House of Representatives; to attending college; and working at Nasa Mission Control during the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Skylab programs, Grumman Aerospace and United Space Alliance. Offering an insightful encapsulation of his career and personal life and the lessons learned throughout, Bostick dedicates The Kid from Golden to his grandchildren. He documents his stories and memories for the benefit of future generations.
